How to Choose the Best Hair Extension

Updated on November 20, 2013

What are hair extensions?

Hair extensions are hair pieces that are specifically designed to add length to an individual's hair style. These hair extensions can be made synthetically or artificially made in a factory, or it can be hand made from real human hair or animal hair. A real human hair wig or hair extension can add a natural looking and feeling length and dimension to your hair style.

How are they used?

Hair extensions are often woven, sewn, or glued into he hair to seamlessly add length, style and dimension to an individual's hairstyle. Many celebrities use hair extensions to quickly change their hair style from a shorter style to a long and luxurious style in moments.

Some of the most natural looking and feeling hair extensions are those that are made of real human hair. Human hair can be dyed to match the natural hair color of the person who is to wear it. Human hair also look and feels more natural, if you can find an extension that closely matches your natural hair type.

Synthetic hair extensions come in many different shades and are designed for all different hair types as well. Some of the most fun hair extensions are those that do not match your natural hair color, because they add an element of style and personal expression.

If you want to add length and dimension to you hair style, which is better for you? Sometimes it is difficult to decide whether to buy a hair extension that may be less expensive, or one that is made from real human hair.A synthetic wig or hair extension is often far less expensive than a real human hair wig or hair extension. You can also purchase synthetic hair extensions in a wide variety of shades and styles. A purely hand made hair extension made from real human hair, however, often looks and feels more natural than a synthetic or manufactured wig or hair extension. Real human hair extensions can be quite expensive, though, and many people cannot afford to spend so much.

But, if you are looking for a more natural look and feel, then a hair extension that is made from real human hair may be better for you. A human hair wig or hair extension can be dyed to match your hair color perfectly and will look and feel the most natural, but a synthetic hair extension might work just as well, and will be less expensive.
